1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Sweater with 7mm needles on: March 29, 2006 03:59:08 PM
My mother and aunt just bought me the most beautiful hand dyed hand spun yarn for a birthday present. It's so soft and cozy and calling to be made into a sweater. It's suggested to be knit with size 7mm (US 10.5) needles. Does anyone have any pattern recommendations for a fitted girly sweater made with this size needles? I can only seem to find sweaters knit with smaller needles. I'm willing to buy the pattern/book if necessary. Thanks for any help!
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Trent Reznor Sweater on: February 13, 2006 02:49:18 PM
My little sister wants me to knit her this sweater.


I think I know how I'm going to do it, but I was wondering if anyone has any recommendations on how to make the hem look so tattered without it unraveling? Also, how should I gauge something such random tensions? I have a feeling my sweater will end up looking a lot "cleaner" than this.

I got the idea originally from this posting. http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=70428.0;all
I used the skull chart from this bag. http://www.helloyarn.com/miniskulltote.htm
I look kinda sickly in the photo but just ignore that. It's the camera phone working it's sick magic. Maybe I'll take a better photo of it later? I need a digi cam  Undecided
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Knitted Thong WARNING CRUDE LANGUAGE on: January 06, 2006 10:48:08 AM
This is a joke gift for my roommate. Yesterday I finished up knitting a dog sweater for my grandmother's dog, Prissy. Using intarsia, I wrote "I <3 Prissy" on the back of the sweater. Unfortunately, it looks like "I <3 pussy" and it's so funny and embarrassing at the same time. My roommates were joking about it and so I asked if they wanted sweaters like it. My roommate's big come back was that she was going to learn how to knit so she could knit me a sweater that says,"My grandmother <3s pussy." So, as a result of this conversation, I made her these.  Grin The photos are bad because it's my camera phone, Undecided but you'll get the idea. The heart looks a lot better actually and there is no curling (like it appears to be doing in the photos.

5  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / knitted flowers and a hot water bottle cozy on: December 10, 2005 07:25:04 PM
I took these photos with my camera phone so the resolution isn't super. Sorry. For my roommates Christmas gift I made her a hot water bottle cozy. She gets cramps a lot so she is always using the hot water bottle. If it were anyone else, I would never knit one of these things. I hope she likes it.


I knitted these two flowers for broches. Is that spelled correctly? Oh well. ^_^  They are Christmas gifts, too, for two of my friends. They look cooler in this photo than they really are.
6  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Seeing my father for the 1st time in 14 years on: December 05, 2005 12:02:50 PM
I'm going to visit my father and his wife for Christmas. I have no idea what to get them for Christmas. Any ideas on sewn or knitted trickets I could make for gifts?
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Hiding dropped stitches in a blanket on: November 13, 2005 10:47:17 PM
I'm making a lap blanket for my grandfather. It is pretty plain, one color seed stitch except for a border with cable stitch that's about 3" wide at the edges. I accidently dropped three stitches (separately) in the main section of the blanket. Any idea on how to hide them? Some friends had suggested that I just make flowers and put them over the blanket covering the holes (which would look fine since the blanket is very plain otherwise, but this is for my grandfather so flowers aren't quite appropriate).
